As I stand here with my nose pressed against the window of your life, I feel restricted from crossing the threshold into a world I’ve never known before; a world I’ve longed for my entire life. You can see me as I stand on the outside looking in, all wide-eyed and searching for a glance, a smile – something that shows me you acknowledge my presence, and you will welcome me to come inside where it is safe and warm.
